This compilation, curated by Jean-Paul Garnier (aka loopool), reveals the possibilities of making music from a single short sample of a scream.
Statement from the curator: Every sound that you hear on this compilation was created using a single sample, a scream, just a little over a second long, a mere 262kb. The album was created to explore the vast array of possibilities utilizing minimal source material. The original scream itself is inconsequential and disappears into the filter of the artists involved. It was designed as a challenge to the artists, as if told that only a C major chord could be used in composition, yet interesting music had to the the result. Even with this restriction the world of sound is endless and is exemplified by the variety of music presented on this compilation. Thank you to all of the artists involved and to Webbed Hand Records for hosting this project! loopool / Jean-Paul Garnier, Los Angeles 2012
